What made you decide to create a swimwear line?
"I'd had been thinking about it on and off for the past five years. I swim almost daily, and I found most swimwear that came in my size to be boring and unflattering with no real fashion elements.
Why did you choose to only include sizes eight through 18?
"For this first collection, I decided to start in a size range that 80% of women live between, and frighteningly, is also totally under catered for in fashion-forward swimwear."
Do you plan to offer smaller and larger sizes in the future?
"Yes, that is the goal! I want Robyn Lawley swimwear to be the go-to brand for swimwear for all women. We will add sizing according to the feedback we receive and we are really hoping the demand is there. We have also ensured that the sizing is 'true' for my collection; regular swimwear brands tend to be very small fit, and you often find yourself going up one or two sizes to be comfortable. This is not the case with my line."
Where did you find your design inspiration?
"I'm lucky enough to travel around the world for work. I'm constantly meeting new people, seeing new art, and living in new cultures. I visually capture ideas and concepts every day. My dragon fruit one-piece was inspired by my love of food.
